  1. s13 ca18det problems

    hey i had a similar problem, the car would go no where , and just a short drive to the shops the turbo would be glowing, the problem is etheir your cam angle sensor is knackered or the key on the front of the exhaust side cam is f**ked, it retards the spark and pretty much the car goes no where and the turbo works overtime and tries its best but the engine has no grunt. both the cam angle sensor was gone as well as the key on the cam, cost me about 100 bucks i think to replace. hope my experiance helps.
  2. hey peeps, changed my gearbox oil in my ca silvia on sunday and yeah pretty much found bits and pieces of bearings and anyway i can find another one for 200 bucks,, me and the old man really cbf rebuilding the shagged one so is it worth it?? good stuff *thumbs up

  4. who do you know thats famous?

    i met the bloke that if i had a choice i would of met,, in 2006 when i was 13(only 17 atm),i met 7 times world champion Michael schumacher my dad rang me up one day and goes get out of bed michael schumacher is at my family friends winery in tasmania! so whatever i got up grabed my karting history book and headed over to the winery, went up to him introduced myself and had a chat(hes pretty damm short), talked about ferrari what he was down down here etc and he signed my book and got a photo, he was intrested in what sort of kart i had, talked about engines and yeah he had a bit of trouble though trying to spell/pronounce my name(which is jay)! turns out he wanted something to do in the lead up to the 2006 agp so he flew to tas, got in a chopper and came down to huonville and had some food and f**ked off,, in my opinion i pretty much win, not bad when you wake up and wonder what am i going to do today?! meet michael schumacher.
  5. yep 99% of the time that will be your problem
  6. yeah i had the same problem, if had me screwed for a few minutes also, under the two sides of the spolier there are two or three clips each side and with all due caution you need to pull up f**king hard to budge the spoiler, i may of used a screw drive with rag on the end of the flat head screw driver to help persaude it to move. I also thought there was more screws but yeah. then your left with two or three female clips left in your spolier each side, bit of racing tape and bobs your uncle and fannys your aunt good luck
